Cowboy Jack

 

Lyrics

1. He was just a lonely cowboy,
With a heart so brave and true.
And he learned to love a maiden
With eyes of Heaven’s own blue.

2. They learned to love each other
As they named their wedding day
When a quarrel came between them
And Jack, he rode away.

3. He joined a band of cowboys
And tried to forget her name
And out on the lonely prairie
She waits for him the same

4. One night when work was finished
Just at the close of day
Someone said sing a song Jack
T’will drive those cares away

5. When Jack began his singing
His mind, it wandered back
For he sang of a maiden
Who was waiting for her Jack

6. Jack left the camp next morning
Breathing his sweetheart’s name
He said I’ll ask forgiveness
For I know that I’m to blame

7. But when he reached the prairie
He found a new made mound
And his friends they sadly told him
That they laid his loved one down

8. They said as she was dying
She breathed her sweetheart’s name
And asked them with her last breath
To tell Jack when he came

9. Your sweetheart waits for you, Jack
Your sweetheart waits for you
Out on the lonely prairie
Where the skies are always blue
